GOVERNING  BODY

Budgets & Audits & Financials

Oceanport operates under the Borough form of New Jersey municipal government. The Borough form is often referred to as a “weak mayor-strong council” form. The mayor retains all general law authority, presides over council meetings and can vote in the case of a tie. The mayor appoints, with the advice and consent of council, all subordinate officers of the municipality. The council is the legislative body of the Borough. All executive responsibilities not placed in the office of the Mayor by general law or the Borough law remain with the council.

The Borough Council is comprised of six members, elected by the public in partisan elections for three-year terms of office on a staggered schedule, with two seats coming up for election each year. All members have equal power and may vote on all issues. The Mayor is elected by the public in partisan elections for a four-year term of office.
NOTICE:  Email received by or sent to Borough officials is subject to the Open Public Records Act [OPRA]. This means that absent some specific privilege, all such communications are considered a public record and are subject to publication and/or dissemination to the public upon request.

Mayor Tvrdik's Message

April  / May 2024

With winter behind us and warmer weather on the way, you will notice a lot of activity here in beautiful and bustling Oceanport. Our public parks have been upgraded and expanded over the past year and they are being utilized more than ever by our residents, children, and adults alike. Please keep in mind there are more children out and about as you are driving through town. Please, please, please SLOW DOWN and drive to the speed limit. Our police department is actively employing radar guns and other speed measurement apparatus, and speeders will be ticketed.

The multipurpose fields at Maria Gatta Park are being used every single day by residents of Oceanport and Read More....
